The end is coming for The Bonnie Hunt Show after two seasons on the air. Hosted by actress and comedian Bonnie Hunt, the Warner Bros. syndicated show has been struggling in the ratings essentially since it debuted.
The series has stayed on the air for two seasons mainly because NBC-owned stations had made a two-year deal. Warners could have pulled the plug last spring but instead showed faith and hoped that ratings would improve. Now that the agreement is coming to an end, so is The Bonnie Hunt Show.
Hunt reportedly gave the bad news to her staff on Monday morning but the cancellation wasn’t officially confirmed until last night.
By all accounts, the daytime series will remain in production and complete the season so there are lots of new episodes to come.
What do you think? Why did the show fail? Is there no room for more than a couple of daytime talk shows, like The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Oprah Winfrey Show? Or, is there something lacking in Hunt’s show?

The Bonnie hunt show was a breath of fresh air! Bonnie is so talented, funny, kind and compassionate. I just enjoyed the show so much and was very disappointed when it was cancelled. I don’t care for either of the shows that are top rated. Bonnie is a genuine shining star! Sorry that politics, and the ways of blinding the sheep, get to stay in the lime-light! We love you, Bonnie!
I believe Bonnie show started to become more popular after they cancelled it because i only found out about it and fell in love with it about a year ago on YouTube. I wish they had not cancelled it but like Rita Rocks and some other shows they only got popular on Netflix or YouTube after they were cancelled on the air. Also personally I think Bonnie did a great job and the show should of been able to have a longer run because i really believe it was an amazing show!! Go Bonnie Hunt!! 🙂

my two cents is,that Bonnie would have been to much competition for fatso, the brunette,Rosie, who I dont particularly like, but you can”t like and be liked by everyone.right? Bonnie was refreshing, but obviously she stepped on someone”s toes, there obviously was another agenda going on…and then the last idea, is that she probably was not shocking enough…she was kind of a 50’s or 60’s type, kind and nice, probably too nice…for Hollywierd.
Best show ever! She’s was a million times better then Opera, sorry Opera fans but I can’t stand her! The Bonnie Hunt Show was great and I watched it every morning!
